This investment strategy is designed to exploit equity market inefficiencies and usually involves simultaneous long and short matched equity portfolios of the same size within a country. Market neutral portfolios are designed to be either beta or currency neutral, or both. Well-designed portfolios typically control for industry, sector, market capitalization, and other exposures. Leverage is often applied to enhance returns. In this strategy, equity index futures, such as the Dow Jones EURO STOXX 50 Future or the Dow Jones EURO STOXX Sector Index Futures and/or ETFs could be used to efficiently provide leverage and/or neutralize certain parts of the portfolio during volatile market conditions.
